The Heat have suspended Dion Waiters again. This time, Waiters will be banned for six games for failure to adhere to team policies, violation of team rules, and continued insubordination, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets.
The move marks the third suspension on the season for the shooting guard. The first was for insubordination and the second was for an incident on a team plane where Waiters ate an edible and had a medical episode.
Waiters has yet to play for Miami this season, though the team is thriving in his absence. The Heat enter the evening with a record of 18-6—only the Bucks have a better record in the Eastern Conference.
Waiters was set to make $12.1MM this season, but he won’t realize that full amount as a result of his suspensions. He’s on track to earn roughly $12.7MM next season in the final year of his deal.
